Thinking Spring: Children's Books & Poetry for the Season

We've had a lovely touch of spring here. Unfortunately, in New England, just when we think spring is around the corner--winter rears its frosty head again.

I love reading kid's books that are focused around seasons or holidays. Reading about Spring is always hopeful and fun!
